(BUSINESS WIRE) Airbus recently announced that will standardize its use of Stratasys' ULTEM 9085 3D printing material for the production of flight parts for its A350 XWB aircraft.

The ULTEM 9085 resin is certified to an Airbus material specification and is used in Stratasys’ FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) based additive manufacturing solutions. By combining a high strength-to-weight ratio with FST (flame, smoke, and toxicity) compliance for aircraft flight parts, ULTEM 9085 enables the production of lighter weight parts while, ideally, lowering manufacturing costs and production time.
